When printing text I get extra lines or dots of ink next to or under the printed text


It sounds like you have lint on the bottom of the print head. ttle fuzz balls will collect down there and they catch drops of ink and leave little lines as they go across the page. buy an Epson head cleaning kit on ebay. It will include a cleaning fluid and a special foam tipped cleaning wand. Do not use a q-tip.

How do you clean the print heads on the UPDR 150


RESOLUTION Clean the Thermal Head, black rollers, and gray roller with 99% pure Isopropyl Alcohol to remove any visible debris.
The Rollers should be cleaned with a lens cloth and Isopropyl alcohol as needed, or every other Print Pack
TechSpray Wipes may also be used.
  1. Remove the print media and protect it from contamination from any tabletop grime.
  2. Use "Canned" air such as Dust Off or other similar products should be used to clear out any dirt and dust within the printer.
  3. Gently rub from left to right while rotating the grey roller and larger black roller to remove any remaining dust.
  4. Use more air to clear away any remaining particles.

Hi, When printing photos, my photos have horizontal light coloured lines across them. When I print the nozzle check pattern all colours match the guide with the exception of the light magenta....


Epsons are notorious for this sort of problem, especially in used infrequently as ink residue dries on the print head; try using a cleaning cartridge, or swab around relevant print head with cotton bud and ethanol/isopropyl alcohol. Here are examples of cleaning carts, there are others http://www.internet-ink.co.uk/epson-cleaning-cartridges/ http://www.icompinkcartridges.co.uk/epson-r200-r300-r220-r320-r340-cleaning-kit.html

Lines in the print


Nozzle check perfect? No ink drop outside lines? Cyan lines is random position. Print blank pages. It is still appear cyan lines? If yes, it caused by waste ink at bottom plate. Print blank pages more, it will clean itself.

That is ink or dirt on the rollers, you need to clean them by lifting the lid, as if you were putting new ink in, and wipeing the rollers that the paper runs through.

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.
